As Seen on Instagram: Faking Fall

by - September 28, 2018

We're still waiting for Fall down here in the South, but I still want to break out all my Fall clothes despite the temperatures still being in the 90-degree range every day. Obviously that's not practical, so I've just been faking it instead. Below are five outfits I've worn recently that feel like Fall without feeling like Fall, ya feel me?

I've wanted a utility vest the past few years, but I wasn't willing to pay a lot of money for one, especially since I wasn't sure I'd be successful at styling it. Then I found this one at JCPenney for under $20 during a sale. It's very thin, which is perfect for a southern Fall. It comes in two other colors. I ordered in a medium but could have easily sized down to a small. Be warned, it wrinkles easily, especially around the pocket flaps.

Nothing feels like Fall more than plaid. I love this sleeveless top from Target. It is so soft, and I love that there's a flap underneath the buttons so no skin can peek out. It also has the cutest ruffle detail around the sleeves.

I don't do a lot of shopping at Aeropostale these days, but they have some good Fall tops right now. I'm a sucker for anything floral, and I really like the pleats on this one. It's also pretty thin so I didn't get too overheated, plus I paired it with a denim skirt and sandals to balance out the temperature.

Who could resist this smoky blue plaid button-up? I can't wait until it cools off enough for me to wear it on its own, but in the meantime I'll throw it on over a dress, roll up the sleeves, slip on some sandals and go.

And the vest makes another appearance, this time worn over a ruffle-sleeve striped shirt with lace-up ankle jeans and leopard flats. I wore this while working an expo for a sister magazine and then to drive three hours back home.
